The use of the cotton gin had a major impact on slavery by expanding the use and population of slaves. “This machine revolutionized the process of separating cotton from its seed, making it dramatically faster and less expensive to turn picked cotton into usable cotton for textiles” the author said. Harvesting the cotton fields was intense work and the more cotton that was being produced lead to more fields causing more slaves to be needed to work those fields. All the large cotton plantations that the south maintained, by 1850 the slave population increased tremendously. “Southern wealth had become reliant on this one crop and thus was completely dependent on slave-labor.” The article stated which means the number one crop the south provided
After the events of World War 2 in 1945, multiculturalism in Australian popular culture has emerged significantly. Evolving through the forms of food and tourism/ travel multiculturalism has contributed to the modern Australian identity. World War 2 left Australia with a much smaller population and the government realised that they needed to “populate or perish” As a result immigrants looking to find better lives started arriving in Australia between 1947-1963 brining new foods and customs. Food from different cuisines became a major part of Australian culture during the late 1900’s with many different types of food becoming available throughout the country. Forms of transport changed within Australia, as the increased population, caused

Do you usually have strange shapes and unusual colors on your plate at every mean? In the Elizabethan Era, they loved to have unusual colors and strange shapes on their plate at every meal. They would have many different kinds of dishes that would make your plate look like a rainbow. Also, you would find many strange different shapes, consisting of circles and then looking like a blob of slime. Depending on your wealth, being rich or poor, would determine how much food you could eat, or afford. Very wealthy people could afford to go to banquets and feast, but on the other hand, the non wealthy could not afford going to them. At the banquets and feast, it was important that the food was served for nobility. Also, still to this day, people still engage in banquets like the people in the Elizabethan Era. At

The south is known for consisting of states that cook the most heartiest meals and extremely unhealthy meals from the way that the main course is prepared to the desserts being filled with lots of sugar. The state of Louisiana is a true southern state because it is known for its culturally driven food, especially in the city of New Orleans.

“You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food,” said Chef Paul Prudhomme. During my first few months in Philadelphia, the food of this place approved Chef’s comment as far as I knew. I did not acquire the use of forks to eat pretzels, hoagies, and the famous Philadelphia cheesesteaks. As a busy student not being able to venture out much to explore and absorb Philadelphia’s history I had knowledge of a very few obvious food choices that surrounded everyday life in Center City. The amount of carbohydrates in pretzels and Philadelphia cheesesteaks scared me coming from Austin, Texas, one of the healthy-eating cities in the nation. However, I found them extremely delicious and satisfying to my taste, which only started
I attended a lecture in the UA Poetry Center presented by Dr. Jerome Dotson (an instructor in Africana Studies) on October 8th. The speaker, who obtained an MA in African American Studies and a PhD in History, presented information on the diets of slaves, and specifically within that, the connotation of pork in their meals. Dr. Dotson introduced the topic with a video of Kunta Kinte’s visual explanation of the meaning of food in a slave’s life. The video highlighted what slaves ate, which consisted of grits, roughly ground corn, and pork.
Life in the 1800’s was hard and very different from present day. From what they ate, how they made their food, to their struggles in the winter were unlike today 's problems. You might be surprised that they ate the same meals almost everyday. Their cooking tools were way less advanced. For example, they used old school stoves, fireplaces, and heavy iron pots for normal everyday cooking. There were even vegetarians back then! With that being said, there are some common traits linking the 1800’s to present day.
One myth I chose was The Wampanoag brought popcorn to the first Thanksgiving feast. Wampanoag had eating popcorn but they had eating other things to but popcorn wasn’t the first. They also ate cranberry sauce. Also they ate bread, meat pies, and boiled pumpkins. Also corn pudding, turkeys, and ducks. Also there were berries, grapes, dried plums, and nuts.

During the Elizabethan period, many customs that are seen in everyday modern life were different in that era. One such custom that was drastically different, was the process of eating food. Three meals were consumed daily: breakfast, dinner, and a midday meal. Breakfast was the first meal to be eaten, and usually consisted of bread, eggs, jam, fish, and sausages. This meal was typically for giving people a fresh start to their day. Dinner was the second meal of the day, usually eaten between 10:00 a.m. and noon. A variety of foods such as venison, fish, salads, cheese, and nuts were available. The final meal of the day was supper. This was eaten between 5:00 or 8:00 after a day’s work was finished, and lasted for two or three hours. This meal included sausage, wine, porridge, and cabbage. While there was a huge assortment of different foods, bread and meat were seen as staple foods, and ale and milk were used as drinks. There was also a considerable difference between the food of a commoner, and the food of an aristocrat.
The Gold Coast may never sleep, but even our vibrant city enjoys a collective rest to focus on the race that stops the nation. The Melbourne Cup is more than just a horserace, it’s about the spectacle, the glamour, and the companionship (even when that companion is your slightly too tipsy workmate, cheering for the horse she bet against). Of course, you don’t have to be in Melbourne to appreciate the Cup; it’s a national phenomenon, to be run vicariously wherever you find yourself (don’t be scared, the exercise will do you good. Who knows, you might even win!). So, here’s your guide to the Four Fs of Gold Coast Melbourne Cup Day:
For African Americans migrating from the southern United States to the North and the West Coast, they almost all shared similar experiences. They were worn-down by the Jim Crow south and the restrictions placed upon them and were seeking new opportunities to better themselves and the future generations that would come after them. Although sharing this similar experience and background, each individual went through their own unique form of assimilation.
No one is completely 100% sure when bread was invented, however, we do know that the bread eaten then was undeniably different from the bread we eat today. “For much of recorded human history, man, indeed, did pretty much live by bread alone. Our close relationship with the staff of life goes back at least 6,000 years to Egypt, where still today, the words
